PERFECT MEATBALLS

2008-07-01



Perfect Meatballs image

A traditional Italian meatball, slow cooked in a basic Pomodoro Sauce (see "Perfect Pomodoro Sauce"). The idea is to make these as moist and as un-meatloaf tasting as possible. If the meat doesn't seem to "stick" together, add a few more breadcrumbs than whats called for. Slow cooking them in the sauce is the key

Categories     Meat

Time 3h20m

Yield 12 meatballs, 4 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 15

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb 90% lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, grated
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, large grained
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3 tablespoons dried basil or 5 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon pesto sauce, store-bought
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, for sauteing

Steps:

  • Grate the onion, set aside (will include a lot of juice, or water).
  • Mince the garlic very finely, put the salt and olive oil onto it, and with the back end of a chef's knife, work the garlic into a paste.
  • ** Alternative, or if you don't know how to do this, just mince the garlic and onions as finely as you can.
  • In a large bowl, add the meat, onion, garlic, egg, bread crumbs, parm cheese, basil, pesto, 3 tbsp olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • Mix by hand just to combine - do not work it too much.
  • Form into balls between the size of a golf ball and a large egg, not working the meat too much. Make as much as you can, about 11-12 and put on a plate.
  • Heat the 4 tbsp olive oil on high heat in a saute pan.
  • Brown the meatballs on all sides, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Place the already prepared pomodoro sauce in a crock pot, or a large pot on the stove, and carefully add the meatballs.
  • Cook for at least 3 hours on low (I cook mine for around 6 hours in a crock pot), stirring occasionally.
